Is anyone actually surprised?
A new poll shows that Mitt Romney is more popular among Democrats than Republicans.
And it’s not even close.
Approximately twice as many Democrats view Romney more favorably than registered Republicans since he voted to impeach the president.
Polling has shown that ever since the impeachment debacle, Congressional Democrats are more likely to be viewed negatively.
However, Romney’s approval rose 19 percentage points among Democrats.
More details on the new poll below:
In fact, Republicans view Mitt Romney even less favorably than Democrats did in 2012 when Romney was running against Obama.
That's gotta hurt.
The new poll has many asking the question: Is Romney going to eventually switch affiliation to the Democrats?
While he's issued no public statements on the matter, his Never-Trump attitude (despite Trump's endorsement of him in his Sentate race) isn't playing well with Republican voters.
The Blaze has more details on the new Gallup poll:
Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) is viewed more favorably among Democrats than he is among members of his own party following his vote to impeach President Trump earlier this year, a new Gallup poll found.
The former GOP presidential nominee has seen his approval rating among Republicans fall dramatically from its high in November 2012, when 84% of Republicans viewed him favorably, to its new low in February 2020, when just 23% viewed him favorably — a massive 61-point drop.
Yet among Democrats, Romney's approval rating has been steadily increasing since November 2012, when just 24% of Democrats viewed him favorably. By February 2020, that figure had jumped to 56%, a 32-point increase in that time span.
As Hot Air pointed out, this means that Romney's current favorability rating among Republicans is one percentage point lower than it was among Democrats on the eve of the 2012 election.
As it stands, Romney is viewed more favorably among Democrats than he is among Republicans by 33 points. Among all U.S. adults, he has a 39% favorability rating.
While the failed impeachment effort benefited Republicans, voters view Romney less favorably than ever.
Aside from voting to impeach the president, Romney has also signaled that he might single-handedly derail the investigation into Hunter Biden's role in Bursma.
If Romney votes against voter's wishes and against the interest of national security and draining the swamp, will his approval rating go even lower?
Breitbart confirms the numbers for the failed presidential candidate:
The Utah senator almost universally angered Republicans after voting with Democrats to impeach Trump for pressing the Ukrainian president to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden for his role on the board of Burisma Holdings, a corrupt Ukrainian energy firm.
“The president is guilty of an appalling abuse of public trust. What he did was not perfect. No, it was a flagrant assault under electoral rights, our national security, and our fundamental values,” Romney said on the floor of the Senate in February while defending his vote.
Romney, however, signaled last week that he would vote to authorize a subpoena as part of Senate Republicans’ investigation into Hunter Biden’s role in Burisma while his father was leading the Obama administration’s response in Ukraine as vice president of the United States.
Poll results are based on telephone interviews conducted February 17–28, 2020, with a random sample of 1,020 adults with a margin of error of four percent.
Numerous RINOs have finally taken off the mask and have decided to officially join the Democrat party.
Will Romney be the next one?
Would any of us actually be surprised?
And perhaps the most telling question: would any of us care?
